How do any animals stand a chance at survival when our police officers are poaching them as well??? And a pose with the elk to boot....

There is insufficient information here to sign the petition. Had the elk been injured, perhaps crippled by a vehicle, or injured by stray dogs necessitating that it be put down? As for the meat, would you rather it was left to waste? I would much prefer to see it saved for food than wasted.

As for the actions of on duty officers' the discharge report would normally be a requirement. The department however has no requirement to disclose any internal actions (that may have been taken, or may be taken) to the public. If the entire incident was reported to both the Chief of police and the Sheriff, expect action to be taken. Do not expect to be notified of what that action might be.

I've had to put down several road injured deer over the years. Usually they were not fit for human consumption so they were just dragged off of the road and no one available to recover those that were. Policy on written reports or dispatch notification varied with administration.

I would not want the meat to go to waste, I want the officers to pay for killing the town pet. Signed, thanks.
